2017 Bollywood film Tumhari Sulu starring Vidya Balan as the central character is being remade in Tamil and the makers have roped in Jyothika to reprise the role. To be directed by Radha Mohan, the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu is yet to be titled and will be bankrolled by Dhananjayan Govind of BOFTA. The film is currently in the pre-production stage and the makers are working on the cast of the film. And according to latest developments, Tamil actor Vitharth has been roped in for the remake and will be seen playing an important role. Vidharth , known for his roles in critically acclaimed movies in the recent times including Oru Kidaiyin Manu and Kurangu Bommai, will be seen playing the lead role, seemingly Jyothika’s husband in the story. An official announcement regarding others in the cast and crew is expected to be made soon.
The film will also star Telugu actor-producer Lakshmi Manchu too and will be seen reprising the role played by Neha Dhupia in the original. The announcement about the Tamil remake of Tumahri Sulu was made recently and the shooting of the film is expected to begin sometime in May this year.
Tumhari Sulu was one of the biggest releases in Bollywood last year and it was expected that the film will receive an overwhelming response. Upon release, the film fared decently at the box office and could not live up to the expectations of the audience. With the Tamil remake in pipeline, Tamil audience will hope that the makers will make changes in the screenplay or script which will appeal to the local audience and turn out to be a hit film.
Jyothika was last seen in Naachiyar which was directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Bala and the actor’s role was one of the most raw ones she had ever done in the past.
